With an overdraft you can spend money from your current account up to an agreed limit and use the overdrawn amount as you would use your own money on your account.
  • An overdraft is a convenient and flexible loan that you can use for making card payments or for transfers in the Netbank or at a branch, or for withdrawing cash.
  • The minimum overdraft limit is 320 euros. Your overdraft limit depends on your actual income and debts.
  • The minimum required monthly net income is 500 euros.
  • As a rule, your income needs to have been transferred to Nordea Bank for six consecutive months prior to your application. Shorter time periods may be accepted in exceptional cases

The overdraft lasts one year and is extended automatically for one year

Overdraft interest is calculated only on the amount by which you are overdrawn and is calculated for a 360-day year. The interest accrues on the overdrawn amount over a quarter and is debited from your current account on the last day of each quarter and when your overdraft contract ends. When your contract ends, you must also pay back the principal.

  • The interest rate is made up of the base rate of 10.95% and an additional margin.
  • The margin is set individually and reflects your income and your debts.
